Nestle USA in Solon is renovating their Culinary Innovation Center located at 30003 Bainbridge Building Corporate Office. The center will see complete redevelopment including new décor in flooring and ceilings, including ceiling elements and lighting. The famed Pizza Experience and Residential Kitchen experience will also be enhanced, and the Meals Business will see new best-in-class kitchen appliances.
Kira Kabo, Head of Design and Construction for Nestle in North America, said the work being done on the center continues Nestle USA’s advances in providing families with professional-grade experiences. “The Culinary Center and the Chef Team are a gold-standard team, focused on delivering innovative ideas to the brands across the Nestle USA portfolio from a restaurant perspective,” she said. “The team then works to bridge the gap from the out-of-home to the in-home experience.”
With the renovations done to the center, Nestle USA is making a commitment to Solon and the area as a home for culinary innovations. “The Culinary Center is one of the main business keystones for the Solon campus and functions to inspire the teams with new innovative ideas,” Kabo added. “We aim to create on-trend food and beverages for the teams to bring to market and act as an education center for the Nestle brands.”
Nestle USA is utilizing Northeast Ohio companies like Vocon Architects, serving as an architectural partner for the project, while Amicon Construction has been chosen as a general contractor for the center.
Hestan was chosen as the equipment supplier for the kitchen because of their award-winning innovation and purpose-driven design. Kabo said the team has the ability to bring the most up-to-date experience in cooking technology. “Collaborating and building on a new innovative design, the suite will feature first-ever cooking technology integration of both industrial equipment with in-home cooking capabilities,” she said.
The City of Solon continues to provide opportunities for companies to find productive ways of reaching customers, and none tastier than Nestle USA’s newly renovated Culinary Innovation Center.
